    Hello,
    Is there a command line for opening folders in the same window?
    cause somehow folders won't open in the same windows, and this is annoying me..
    i use now just plain "explorer.exe" to call new folders.
    Any "-self" or something like that???

    Thanks in advance

    In Windows Explorer->tools->folder options->browse folders->tick "open each folder in same window"

    i've tried that allready
    and it didn't work

    so i guess i should use command line functions

    if anybody knows what to add after explorer.exe
    i would be thankful

    xsiv said it right, also check.

    Launch Explorer
    Tools
    Folder Options
    Click View (tab)
    Uncheck "Launch folder windows in a separate process"
    Click "Apply to All Folders"
    Click "Apply"
    Click "OK"
    Restart Explorer

    Good luck.
